Although my name appears on the title-page of this 
volume I can hardly claim to be either its originator or its 
compiler. Some years ago, when the fury of American 
Bookplate collecting was at its height, there were in 
existence several lists of Canadian Bookplates. These 
lists were fragmentary, of varying lengths, and of uneven 
value. But they had one feature in common — a cer- 
tain number of the same names with accompanying 
biographical notes appeared on all of them. These 
notes have come down in the present list as a monu- 
ment to the energy and patience of some unknown col- 
lector at whose identity I should hardly wish to hazard 
a guess. Years passed on until finally one of these 
early manuscript lists appeared in a Bookplate auction 
in Boston. It was bought by the American Antiquarian 
Society whose librarian, Mr. Brigham, very kindly 
allowed me to go over it. From this list, from a rather 
scrappy list of my own, from Mr. Jack's "Acadiensis," 
and from Gagnon's two volumes I compiled what at 
that time I thought to be a fairly accurate record of 
early Canadian Ex Libris. Again time passed, publi- 
cation was delayed, and it was not until some months 
ago that, under the stimulus of a Toronto Bookplate 
artist and collector of the present era, I unearthed my 
list and started once more towards the goal of the printed 
book. The above mentioned enthusiast who awoke 
me from my lethargy is Mr. Stanley Harrod who, with 

Mr. Morley Ayearst, has revised, corrected and added 
to my list. They have revised my notes,, they have 
added the many modern plates and some early ones, 
they have delved in Canadian records, they have un- 
earthed original coppers, they have, even as they roused 
me, brought back from oblivion some of the forgotten 
old guard of Canadian collectors. To their generous 
assistance is due this list in its final polished form, and 
to them are due most of the excellent illustrative plates 
from the original coppers and blocks which adorn these 

The reader, then, can understand why I should be 
named as editor rather than as author. This list, like 
Topsy, has "just growed," and to all who have assisted 
in its growth I tender my sincere thanks. 

I also wish to acknowledge the great kindness of those 
individuals who have allowed us the use of the coppers 
or blocks of their Bookplates. 

At the end of the list I have made an alphabetical 
arrangement of all the mottoes appearing on anonymous 
armorials, together with the names of the families making 
use of them. This may help to identify plates that 
otherwise might prove puzzling. 

Needless to say I shall welcome additions and correc- 
tions which collectors may be able to send, addressed 
either to me at Box 3066 Boston, or to Stanley Harrod 
83 Macpherson Avenue, Toronto, Canada.

A Review of Canadian Boo^-Plates 

A DISGRUNTLED collector once said that the only 
^ differences between Canadian and English Book- 
plates were that the former were harder to get and 
less interesting when you got them. Which statement 
has some truth in it. Canadian Ex Libris, especially 
the early ones, are extremely hard to get, first because 
there are not many of them, and second because some 
years ago, or at least so 'tis said, a couple of Book- 
plate entrepreneurs went through Canada and swept it 
clean of plates. And Canadian Ex Libris were unin- 
teresting for two reasons, because no one knew much 
about them, and because most of them were die-sinker 
armorials. This volume is designed to remove these 
objections — first by telling something about Canadian 
Bookplates and their owners, and second by trying 
to show that there is biographical interest attaching to 
the early plates and artistic interest as to the modern 

Up to the present time the number of writers on the 
Ex Libris of Canada is small. In 1895 Phileas Gagnon 
published in Quebec his "Essai de Bibliographic Cana- 
dienne." He gave a few pages of text on Ex Libris and 
listed some two hundred and seventy odd plates. In 
1913, some time after M. Gagnon 's death, the City of 
Montreal, to which he had bequeathed his collection 
of Canadiana, published a second volume of the "Essai" 
listing the items added to the Gagnon collection. In 

this work about twelve pages are given to a list of Book- 
plates not found in Gagnon's original list. ^ These two 
volumes have stood in the same relation to Canadian 
as Charles Dexter Allen's list has to American Bookplates. 
In addition there have been some articles in various 
magazines, notably an interesting series in David R. 
Jack's "Acadiensis," but nothing like the flow of Book- 
plate literature which has made collecting so attractive 
in the United States. 

A comparison of the Ex Libris of Canada and of the 
United States may be interesting in getting at the charac- 
teristics of Canadian plates. Both lands being originally 
colonies of England they naturally followed English 
styles and English customs in Ex Libris as in other 
things. But while the colonists of the New England 
and Southern states used Bookplates from 1750 and had 
various styles such as Jacobean, Chippendale, and the 
like, the Ex Libris history of Canada hardly begins 
before the American Revolution with the loyalists who 
went to Canada after 1775, so that Canadians took to 
Bookplates about 1800 when the most tiresome and 
inartistic style, the die-sinker armorial, was popular 
in England. Thus it is that until comparatively recent 
times we find in Canada an uninteresting series of die- 
sinkers with very few Jacobeans or Chippendales and 
practically no pictorial plates. 

Perhaps these die-sinkers are characteristic of the 
Canadians themselves. The plates were usually with- 
out mantling or supporters, and their owners were 
perhaps, like the modern democratic Canadians who 
refuse peerages, plain and simple people who came with- 
out any frills to the new country to make their fortunes. 
It may be that the families who came to Canada were 


not of that class which "sported" supporters. At any 
rate the simplicity and strength of the die-sinkers may 
be a reflection of the same qualities in their owners. 

A return to our comparison shows still another feature 
of Canadian Ex Libris. The colonies which gained their 
independence became a separate nation with its own 
ideas and ideals, developed in its own way, in art as in 
politics and trade. In fact in the United States there 
was a feeling which made everything English so dis- 
liked that English styles and customs were thrown 
overboard. One of the first things to go was coat armour, 
and as a result our present-day Bookplates are mostly 
pictorial rather than armorial. This naturally makes 
for artistic rather than conventional ideals in Ex Libris, 
and in part has helped to develop such artists as E. D. 
French, J. W. Spenceley, S. L. Smith, A. N. Macdonald, 
and many others who have done so much to advance 
the art of Bookplates and make collecting popular. On 
the other hand, the Canadians followed a different course. 
Bound to the mother country by ties of blood and affec- 
tion, the loyalists came to Canada because they liked 
English rather than American ideas, they followed her 
lead in most things, one of which was in being proud of 
their ancestry and using the coats-of-arms which had 
descended to them. This has, I think, tended to keep 
out the pictorial plates and has thereby made modern 
Canadian plates rather less interesting than those of the 
United States. I happened to glance through a lot of 
some one hundred and forty Canadian plates, most of 
them done in the last twenty years. Fifty-two of them, 
or nearly half, were armorial. To take at random the 
same number of plates made since 1900 in the United 
States will show hardly more than ten per cent armorials. 


Moreover the armorial style in Bookplates was hardly 
conducive to art and the development of, Ex Libris 
designers. The commercial engraver could make a die- 
sinker as well as an artist. It is only in recent years 
that men like A. H. Howard, W. W. Alexander and 
Stanley Harrod have turned to the newer ideas of the 
Bookplate and have produced not only interesting and 
artistic armorials but also some clever and individualistic 

But this movement is of recent origin, the engravers 
who worked before 1890 were of the older and more con- 
ventional school, and their number was small. Excluding 
the strictly modern artists there were but four men who 
engraved and signed any number of early Canadian 
Bookplates. It is very probable that there are a number 
of plates by these designers and by others, but as the 
great majority of Canadian plates are not signed it is 
impossible to know them, especially as the more con- 
ventional type of the armorial plates allowed little or no 
latitude for the engraver to develop any personal style 
or manner. Of the four artists mentioned the earliest 
was probably C. W. Torbett who engraved the Ex Libris 
of T. F. Jeffrey, J. W. Johnson and Fitzgerald Uniacke. 
Torbett, who worked in Halifax, may be dated as flourish- 
ing from 1780 to 1825. In Quebec there were two 
engravers who worked during the first quarter of the 
Nineteenth Century. They were J. Jones (plates of J. 
L. Hall, J. Stewart and S. Wright), and J. Smillie, Jr. 
(plates of Hoffman, McCallum and David William 
Smith), and both of them are mentioned by Gagnon as 
being artists of repute. F. Adams of Montreal perhaps 
took up the work just after Jones and Smillie had passed. 
He probably flourished during the middle years of the 


century. Plates by Adams are those for Hagar, La 
Rocque, Longley, Reid, and Wise. 

A few other artists are all that I can find to mention. 
Suffield (plates of Buchanan and R. J. Uniacke) and 
E. Benoit (plate of William Smith) were contemporaries 
of Torbett. A. Bourne (plate of J. P. Turner) and 
Biddle (plates for the Patton brothers) were nearer the 
time of Adams. Such engraving firms as the Rolphs of 
Toronto and the Edwin Cox Co. of Montreal are of later 
date; they are moreover of the commercial type and the 
work put out by them cannot be looked upon as the 
product of one engraver. 

The earliest dated plates of which I have record are 
those of Anne Watt, a plain label of 1795, and the die- 
sinker armorial of Richard John Uniacke, dated 1801. 
Of Anne Watt I know nothing but that she lived in 
Quebec. Uniacke was Attorney General and Member 
of His Majesty's Council and was still more interesting 
as being the father of three sons who in their turn possessed 
Bookplates. There are, however, a number of undated 
plates which most certainly are earlier than those of 
Watts and Uniacke. One of the most interesting of 
these is that of Louis Archambaud Douglas, Comte de 
Montreal, a beautiful example of the heavy type of 18th 
Century French Ex Libris. Douglas succeeded to the 
title in 1770 and went to live in France so that it is prob- 
able that his plate was made there rather than in Canada. 

It is interesting to notice the difference between the 
French Canadian and the English Canadian Ex Libris. 
The former are much in the minority as regards numbers, 
and are usually labels. Such is that of M. Bedard who 
was, about 1820, first mayor of Quebec. That the 
plates of Frenchmen in Canada are mostly labels, such as 

those of Father Noiseux the Vicaire- General and Cure of 
Trois Rivieres, may be due to the fact that mgst of them 
belonged to Catholic priests who, with true clerical 
humbleness, were content with the simplicity of a label 
rather than with a more proud and elaborate plate. A 
more ornate plate, however, is that of the College de 
Ste. Marie a Montreal, which gives an interesting view 
of the college guarded by what appeared in those days 
necessary for a college Bookplate, several cherubs and 
genii or goddesses of knowledge. I may mention in 
passing that there seem to be very few modern Book- 
plates belonging to French Canadians. 

One of the most interesting of the 18th Century plates 
belonging to English Canadians is that of Peter Livius 
(Allen No. 504, Gagnon No. 4880), who was a loyalist 
of New Hampshire. After the Revolution he went to 
Canada and was made Chief Justice of Quebec. Livius 
was born in England in 1727 and died there in 1795, 
so that the plate must be earlier than that of Miss Watts. 
Moreover the print here shown is the first state of the 
plate, having merely the name "Livius." An escutcheon 
and the name "Peter" are found on a later state which 
is presumed to be circa 1780. Another early plate is 
that of Thomas Walker, perhaps made before 1775, a 
person who had the dubious honor of having the second 
book ever published in Canada (Quebec, 1767), put 
out in regard to him. Other early Ex Libris are those 
of John Elmsley, a die-sinker of circa 1790, and of William 
Dunbar, a queer old crest of circa 1800. 

In looking through the list of Canadian plates one can 
hardly help noticing the preponderance of professional 
men, of lawyers, judges of all kinds and degrees, doctors 
and clergymen. The law leads easily in numbers with 

the medics and ecclesiastics far in the rear. Such men 
as Henry Boulton, Edward Bowen, W. H. Draper, John 
Hagerty, John Macdonald, Hugh MacMahon, J. L. 
Morrison, and the Uniackes started in at the bar and 
made names for themselves either in the law or in poli- 
tics. Among the doctors is the armorial of William 
Warren Baldwin of Spadina and the decorative Label of 
Dr. Trestler. One or two plates belonging to Church 
of England dignitaries are reproduced, and pedagogy 
may perhaps be content with a rather odd little design 
belonging to and said to be designed by Sir Daniel Wilson, 
F. R. S., once President of Toronto University. Plain 
everyday citizens have perhaps been rather left out in 
the cold, so I cannot help mentioning the plate of D. W. 
Smith who thought so much of Canada that he gave his 
arms a chief of the beaver and wrote Canada above his 

It may perhaps be pertinent to wonder how many 
Canadian plates were engraved in England. It is very 
probable that many Englishmen had Ex Libris before 
they emigrated to Canada. It is also likely that some 
Canadians, at least in the early days, sent to England 
for their Bookplates as well as for their books. Some 
few may have had their plates made while they were 
visiting in England. Perhaps such a one was B. Homer 
Dixon of Toronto, at one time Consul to Holland and 
while there was honored by being made Knight of the 
Netherlands Lion, an honor which he appreciated by 
having a new Bookplate, possibly having it made in 
Holland, with his "Esq.," changed to "K. N. L.," and a 
representation of his decoration. I have found the 
following names of English designers signed to Canadian 
Ex Libris — Culleton, Griffiths & Weigalls, Huntly, W. 


Jackson, Jarrett, Mitchell, Pugh Bros., Silvester and 
A. Wyon. These are all of London, but there are some 
few from other parts of England such as Murdoch & 
Sons of Edinburgh. 

I may mention the fact that the list includes the 
Governors General and certain others who, although 
not actually Canadians, have had a great deal to do 
with Canadian History. Still another class, who per- 
haps have rather less right to be included, are those 
people of other lands for whom Canadian artists have 
designed Bookplates. It may be questionable as to 
whether or not such names should be included. But 
I have thought it best to put them in, especially as the 
plates were designed by Canadian artists and since, 
moreover, their biographical notices will show the reader 
wmere the plates are at present actually used. 

Modern Canadian Bookplates may be said to only par- 
tially carry on the traditions of earlier times. The 
English idea that a coat-of-arms is the only thing for 
an Ex Libris is only partly the vogue at present. More- 
ever the older forms of uninteresting die-sinkers have 
given place to more artistic productions. The plate 
by W. W. Alexander for Lady Eaton is in my opinion 
one of the most perfect examples of artistic excellence 
in Bookplate work. The English plate of Edith Peruzzi 
de Medici by Miss Helard is the only plate I have seen of 
the same type which may be said to equal it in beauty 
of design, excellence of form, and delicac}^ of finish. The 
present day feeling that a Bookplate may be a really 
artistic production has happily taken firm root in Canada 
and has brought forth such excellent armorials as the 
above mentioned plate by Alexander and the recent 
Ex Libris of Sir Edmund Walker by Stanley Harrod. 

Some of the modern designers have followed the 
armorial form and ideas of Thomas Moring and Graham 
Johnston and have given some of their plates the appear- 
ance of woodcuts. Mr. Morley Ayearst has done several 
rather good plates of this description. In general it may 
be said that the armorials are now interesting and often 
artistic and that there is an increasing vogue of the 
combination of armorial-pictorial plates which uses the 
coat-of-arms either in a decorative way or as a part 
of the decoration. 

The purely pictorial Ex Libris have also in recent years 
had an increased popularity in Canada. The growth of 
a population not brought up in the coat-of-arms tradition 
combined with the modern artistic impulse, which 
possibly had its origin in the Edinburgh group of Book- 
plate moderns or with Guthrie and others, has produced 
a number of Canadian pictorial or decorative plates. In 
general, however, these Ex Libris have the same fault as 
most modern English and American designs — that is, 
lack of strength. There are, of course, some excep- 
tions, such is the plate of Basil Morgan by J. E. H. Mac- 
donald, but the milk and water school is still at work 
on Bookplates in modern Canada as in England and 
the United States. In fact modern Canadian plates 
seem but a shadow of a shadow, for they too often look 
like imitations of English designs, and if placed beside 
a collection of modern German or Spanish plates they are 
extremely weak and colorless. 

There is, however, an element of hope connected with 
modern plates, since a number of the better Canadian 
artists have made some Bookplates, and are constantly 
making more. Members and associates of the Royal 
Canadian Academy have designed Ex Libris, and it is 


to be hoped that their examples will raise the artistic 
tone of modern plates and possibly bring out some 
artistic impulse in Bookplates which shall be charac- 
teristic of modern Canada. 

Some twenty artists seem to represent the present 
Bookplate staff of the Dominion. Of these five may be 
mentioned as being above the average. 

W. W. Alexander, an engraver and etcher of Toronto, 
has some twenty- five plates to his credit. His later work 
is of high standard, although he is emphatically an heraldic 
rather than a pictorial designer. In his armorial Ex Libris 
he has broken away from the traditional die-sinker style 
and has followed the older and more correct models. 

Morley J. Ayearst, an undergraduate of Toronto 
University, has for a young designer shown great promise. 
He has made about a dozen plates and his pen and ink 
armorials, which follow the spirit of Graham Johnston, 
are for the most part well composed and bear evidence 
of a sound knowledge of heraldic design. 

Stanley Harrod of Toronto has in number of Ex Libris 
outstripped all other Canadian artists, having some 
fifty odd plates to his credit. His pictorial plates are 
not as successful as his armorials, for he is rather weak 
on figures. His recent heraldic Ex Libris are modelled on 
good ideals although in some cases the draughtsmanship 
leaves something to be desired. His best efforts are those 
in which he uses pure design of some definite school. 
The plate for Sir Edmund Walker is remarkably well 
designed and executed. During the last year Mr. Harrod 
has been experimenting with etching and has done so well 
at it that I hope later to see him combine such an idea 
as the Walker plate with some fine etching and produce 
some remarkably beautiful Bookplates. 


The late A. H. Howard of Toronto was, until his 
death in 191 6 the premier illuminator of Canada. He 
has done about thirty plates, all in black and white. He 
was fond of quick, sketch}^ styles, sometimes too sketchy, 
and like most modern Canadian, English and American 
artists could have learned a great deal by study of the 
work of Sherborn, Cossmann, von Bayros, De Riquer 
and most of the Germans. Mr. Howard was a master 
of design and ornament, but often did not consider finish. 
An excellent example of this is his plate for the National 

J. E. H. Macdonald, a painter of Toronto, is one of 
the best all-round designers in Canada. He has made 
about eight or more Bookplates, all of them good, but in 
one case at least has had a design reproduced by intaglio 
when it was not at all fitted for that process. 

There are some other Canadian artists who may be 
mentioned in brief. Carl Ahrens is a landscape artist 
who has carried his specialty into Bookplates with some 
success. Alex Scott Carter, an excellent illuminator 
who was trained as an architect, has made some half 
dozen plates which show simplicity in treatment, good 
design, and his training as a student of illumination of 
the best mediaeval periods. E. M. Chadwick is a lawyer 
of note and the chief heraldic authority of Canada. His 
few Ex Libris all follow the Tudor style of Garter plates 
and are excellent examples of that school. Selwyn 
Image of Oxford, a noted designer of stained glass, has 
made a plate which shows strong, sure work and a full 
knowledge of design and craft. Edwin J. Cox of 
Montreal follows the mid- Victorian tradition of heraldic 
plates, and naturally although his craftmanship is good 
his designs lack imagination. H. Ecclestone of Toronto 


has made a few plates, one or two of which are rather 
like Harold Nelson's equestrian armorials.^ Ida Hamil- 
ton of Hamilton has done four plates which show excel- 
lent feeling for pure design and spots of color. Ida 
Sutherland, a pupil of A. H. Howard, has designed a few 
plates, mostly pictorial, which while good are rather 
overcrowded with material. 

Other artists who have produced a plate or two each are 
Louise Brown, Gustav Hahn, George Lightwood, C. M. 
Manley, E. V. Pannell, Owen Staples, R. Thomson and 
E. H. Varley.
